Manchester United and England star David Beckham is to be examined by a specialist today to determine the extent of an aggravated knee injury.

If surgery is required, he could be out of action for up to six weeks.

Beckham played in England's World Cup qualifier against Germany on Saturday despite a nagging injury to his left knee.

An awkward fall in the second half of the 1-0 loss aggravated the damage.

Club manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said Beckham is "very doubtful" for a Saturday showdown with English Premier League leaders Leicester City.

Surgery could see him miss the rest of the first phase of the Champions League.
